I agree, whether you're a ATI/Nvidia fan that type of discussion isn't required here, they are both at the highest end of GPU's available and dominate all games. it's just down to preferences.

He's made his order and whether he went for ATI/Nvidia he got a fantastic gaming rig and hasn't really gone wrong.

Yes, photos, and also remember legend, if you need help with the actual build itself, feel free to pop back on here to get advice, this place is teaming with people who will help put a rig together on here,

I myself once helped someone build a rig via webcam just to help out :)

I don't think so :l It's past 14:00 and bpost doesn't do any deliveries after that time so I have little hope I'll still get my cpu and ram today.

So do I .. There's so many cables !
It looks overwhelming for a first time but we'll see :)

Just a quick question though,
am I supposed to attach the cpu cooler after or before I put the motherboard in my case?

In your case before. CM 690 II Advanced has a weird cut-out for back of the CPU area on the mobo so you will not have access.

My build is completed up to the part where I need to connect all the cables.
I did this build together with my dad, who has no knowledge about building pc's either,
but I think we did quite alright. The cpu-cooler was a real bitch to get in place..
Also, I left the psu out because I am using it to ground myself before handling the parts.

ps. I have my uncle coming over today to help me wire this rig up.
Here are some pictures from yesterday;

Just double check which socket your Graphics card is in, I know with some boards they have to be in the correct socket or will only run at x8 speed,

I don't know that board myself but double check it's the primary PCIE 3.0 socket

First off;
I'd like to thank everyone who helped me and adviced me to build this beast myself ! :)

The building process went really smooth :)
Attaching the cpu cooler was the hardest part imo.
Also, the cabling process was really complicated for me, being a first timer,
but luckily my uncle ( expert ) explained everything to me and helped me wire it up :)

The pc is AMAZING and I'm loving it :)
PS.: the screen on the picture isn't my real screen. That screen is yet to be delivered :)

Here are the final result pictures:

Great job and I really hope you enjoy, you do however have a great case there for a lot better cable management. Take the time one weekend or whatever to get it sorted, that hardware deserves it!! Have fun mate :)

Yeah great job on first build! Like already mentioned, do some cable clean up when you can (get that mass cables away from your video card, give it room to breathe). I have the same case, and you can stuff almost all that extra cable behind the MB tray. Also, you could route the 8pin power cord from the top left hole if you have enough length. And you can also remove the bottom hard drive cage too, this help free up some room and promote easier air flow from front fan.

Do you mind if i ask what the total bill was for your build?

Congrats again on your first build, you did good job picking out parts and putting it all together. Thanks for the pricing info.

Did you ever get chance to clean some of the wiring up?

You're welcome :) And no not really :l I did open my case up again after all the comments and took a good look at the wiring beneath the GPU, but I couldn't find a way to make it better..

It's actually pretty 'clean' imo. I didn't use any cables that weren't neccesary and I tried to keep them away from the mobo ( in which I succeeded ). Perhaps one day I'll have to balls to detach all my cables again and make it neater.

But the thing is, I don't want to fuck anything up you know.. it's running now and working perfectly. The GPU temperature is really good. Same for my CPU cores, so I don't see the need to fix those cables right away..
